Day 23 of 2013 ... Wednesday
Although I had a headache when I woke up and my eyes felt puffy we stayed the course and kept our plans as they were. The ministry in the morning and then a movie. Sara had to work so we worked with Pat and the kids and left Sara behind. It was very cold so we kept our walking activity to a minimum. I took Molly to the door of a family we have called on before. I opened my coat and held it open so Molly could back into it after she knocked on the door. She knocked lightly because her hands were cold. Try as I did to block some of the wind as she knocked, it was very very cold this morning. No one was home so we went back to the nice warm van. We worked until noon then took Pat and the kids back to the Kingdom Hall to drop them off and we went on our way because we had plans for the afternoon, they went back home I think.
The movie was great. "Parental Guidance" with Billy Crystal, Bette Midler and Marisa Tomei. To see young parents try to raise their children in a way that makes them feel they are doing what their parents didn't. And the grandparents trying to update the way they interact with the children to abide with the wishes of the parents. It had some very funny moments. It was a fun movie. I cried ... I always cry. The parents and the grandparents work it out ... of course. The children grow closer to the grandparents. I definitely cried here, almost out loud boohooing. I want my grandchildren to love me. I want my children to understand they were raised in a way we thought was right. We do understand mistakes were made. Mistakes will continue to be made.
Since we had about 20 minutes before the movie Cecil dropped me off at JoAnn Fabrics and He went to WalMart to get ink for his printer. I looked around JoAnn Fabrics while heading to the scrapbooking section and bead section. I found a new Cricut program. Very exciting!! This program is "Create A Critter", I am sure the grandkids will love making some critters for our next art party. I was practicing already and made a long neck dinosaur. Each layer is a different color to give the Critter some dimension. I think I will make invitations for our next art party and send them to the grandkids. I'm thinking Noah's Ark since the new program is for "Critters".
When we got home I was quick to turn on the TV. Cecil told me before we left this morning that BARRY MANILOW was going to be on "The Katie Couric Show". I have never watched her show but I was willing to give it a go today for Barry Manilow. I know who Katie is, I watched her every weekday morning when she was on NBC with Matt Lauer. I still watch Matt in the morning. Barry sang, I listened and swayed to the music. I found out he did not write the songs that made the whole world sing, or Mandy.
Aw .. who cares. keep singing Barry!
That was my day. My headache is gone finally. When we got home, I went directly to the remote to find the channel I needed. Cecil went directly to the cabinet to get me some drugs to help with the headache. I take a pill everyday for headaches but I was out for about a week so now I have to put up with some pain to varying degrees until the meds get back in my system. I should have picked up my prescription sooner but I just kept putting it off. I don't like taking daily meds. SOOOOO instead, today Cecil handed me 6 pills, and I had to take them. Hmmmmm 1 pill everyday to keep the headaches away or 6 pills when I get a headache. When will I learn? By friday or saturday my headaches will be under control again.... as long as I take that stupid pill everyday.
I'm going to play with my new Cricut Program some more so I'll talk to you later.
Ok so you stay warm - baby it's cold outside
by the way I like comments and I really do appreciate your thoughts about my blog so don't be shy ...
Welcome To What's Up With Me!!
This year I want to get personal, to just talk, I have used my blog for business for so long I have grown tired of trying to keep it up dated. SOOOOOO I thought I would give you pieces of my mind ... LOL little pieces at a time.
Now I will from time to time show you what's new in my etsy.com shop but mostly I just want to relax, unwind or get uptight whatever the day brings. But now I'm going to put into words what I'm thinking, what I'm going through, what I'm happy about.
This may become therapy, way cheaper this way!!!
